Studies indicate that CoolSculpting is a highly effective procedure for reducing fat. What makes it so attractive is that it is a non-surgical, noninvasive medical procedure that can help remove extra fat cells from underneath the skin. Since it is noninvasive, it offers a significant number of benefits over conventional, surgical fat removal treatments.
CoolSculpting received the FDA nod in 2010. Today, it has become a very popular procedure in the United States. There has been an 823 percent rise in CoolSculpting treatments since that time. Let’stake a look at how effective the process is.
How Does CoolSculpting work?
Cryolipolysis is the procedure used in CoolSculpting. In this, a roll of fat is placed between two panels which cool it to a freezing temperature. In the year 2009, a study was conducted which looked at the clinical efficacy of this process. The experts that conducted the research found that cryolipolysis was able to reduce up to 25 percent of the treated fat layer.
What made these findings even more notable was at the results were steady even six months post the treatment. The dead fat cells were eliminated from the body via the liver. This process continued for several weeks during the treatment and the full results of the fat loss process were revealed within three months.
Which Parts Of The Body Can Be Treated Via CoolSculpting?
Most people that do CoolSculpting opt to get various parts of the body treated, including:
- Lower back
CoolSculpting is very effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite in areas such as the arms, buttocks and legs. Some individuals also opt for this treatment to reduce excess fat under their chin. It takes approximately an hour to treat the targeted part of the body. If multiple body parts are treated, a greater number of CoolSculpting sessions would be required to see results. The larger body parts may also need more treatments compared to smaller body parts.
Some Facts About CoolSculpting
In order to understand exactly how effective CoolSculpting is, here we look at some relevant questions about the process and the answers to them…
Is This An Effective Obesity Treatment?
CoolSculpting isn’t for everyone and it isn’t a treatment for obesity. In fact, this procedure is ideal for removing smaller amounts of excess fat that is resistant to other weight-loss efforts such as exercise and diet.
Is It Suitable For Everyone?
It is a very effective and safe body fat reducing treatment. However, certain individuals shouldn’t attempt CoolSculpting. Those who have medical conditions such as cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobuinuria (PCH) or cold agglutinin disease shouldn’t opt for this treatment as it can cause serious complications. Regardless of whether or not you suffer from these conditions, it’s vital that you consult your physician before seeking out a cosmetic or plastic surgeon to perform CoolSculpting.
What Are The CoolSculpting Results Like?
In most people, it will take a few treatments to get optimum results; a single treatment will yield negligible changes. Since the effects of CoolSculpting are cumulative in nature, the more treatments you opt for, the more noticeable the results. Eventually, you will notice up to 25 percent of fat reduction in the treated spot. Some people notice milder results in terms of less bulging in the area or a slightly improved waistline.
How Long Can I Expect The Results To Last?
Typically, CoolSculpting results are very long-lasting because it kills off the fat cells. This also means they won’t return. However, if you do gain any weight after the treatment you might notice that you have added fat in those same areas.
Will I Lose Weight With CoolSculpting?
It’s important to keep in mind that none of the fat reduction devices can help you shed pounds. The fact is that muscle always weighs much more than fat. So if you are losing 25 percent of fat in a certain amount of tissue, it doesn’t really add up to that much on the scale.
However, when you lose all the fat that generally spills over the top of your pants, it really counts. In most instances, people that choose to get CoolSculpting done are in search of more manageable proportions at their existing weight. Most find that at the end of the treatment, they have dropped at least one to two sizes in clothing.
Are The Effects Of CoolSculpting Permanent?
As mentioned earlier, it is a permanent fat reduction technology. However, you need to control your weight post the treatment. If you add on any pounds, they will eventually go somewhere. People that opt for CoolSculpting need to be a little responsible when it comes to altering their eating habits and diet. If you don’t focus on these and control what you eat, your body will not change at all.
The Safety Aspect
As you can see, CoolSculpting is one of the most effective ways of losing fat permanently. But people also want to know whether it is a safe procedure. Since it is noninvasive, comparatively speaking, the risks are quite low. Sometimes,contour irregularities may show up just as they do in liposuction.
The CoolSculpting machine leaves far less room for human error when it comes to fat removal. But there are certain limitations on how the removal can be fine-tuned, in the manner that skilled plastic surgeons do in manual procedures. The swelling is very minimal and there are no wounds. If you are planning to get CoolSculpting done, you need to discuss it with your doctor in order to see if it’s right for you.
